Hello Sunshine!

Things were looking pretty dreary around here for awhile. I know anyone who does not live in California will probably laugh so hard they'll have tears streaming down their face, but I'll say it anyway. IT'S BEEN COLD AROUND HERE!!! It's been foggy, rainy, and REALLY cold. We have been staying inside trying to stay warm, only leaving the warmth of our home when truly necessary. Ok, so that may have been a little dramatic. Any way you slice it, it's been cold and dreary around these parts for quite awhile.
Then a few days ago, the clouds parted, the wind stilled and (drumroll please) the sun came out!!! Woo hoo!!! So needless to say, we have been outside enjoying the fresh air and sunshine! Hannah has found a new favorite place to play.

Hannah has had a blast sliding and running and climbing her little heart out. We found a new park that's geared toward toddlers. It's perfect for her. There's nothing there that she can't play on, slide down or climb up.
She's also become quite the little socialite. There hasn't been a day at the park where she hasn't made some friends. It's been so fun watching her play! Last year Hannah definately had a blast at the park, but she was much more timid about the slides and such. Those reservations are gone! Now our biggest problem is leaving. There hasn't been a trip to the park that hasn't ended in big fat tears. She never wants to leave! She would stay there all day and night if you'd let her. Every conversation begins with the park or sliding. She wakes up in the morning, and the first words out of her mouth are "park, Momma?" I fear I've created a monster.
There is an upside to all of this. This great little park is just a quick little walk from our new house....
